NORML Tallahassee advocates for Marijuana Decriminalization and Legalization at the federal, state, local and international level.

Music Fundraisers

The Directors of NORML Tallahassee held the first music fundraiser “Party for Progress” July 2016 to support Sensible Florida’s initiative Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol. Sway Jah Vu and Your Captain Speaking headlined the event!!

Music fundraisers support efforts to bring the community together, educate the public, register voters, legalize marijuana for personal users at the federal and state level, and to provide support services for the medical marijuana program and to individuals impacted by the criminal justice system due to marijuana cannabis prohibition.

Fundraisers place the spotlight on consumers, artists, artisans, musicians, and cannabis businesses.

The promo music video below is from the 2017 420 Smoke Out Festival. Aptly named to oppose the medical marijuana smoking ban lifted in 2019.

NORML Tallahassee Chapters have made impacts in the fight for marijuana legalization since 1970

Evidence-based analyses facts over fiction paints the true picture of legalization.

Executive Director Melissa Villar, BS, MPA

Melissa is lifetime supporter of cannabis. While studying marijuana reform at the Askew School of Public Administration and Policy at Florida State University provided the perfect opportunity to collaborate with NORML of Florida and Sensible Florida. Melissa, officially “came out of the cannabis closet” and resigned as a staff member of the Florida House of Representatives in 2015, due to the troubling realization that personal marijuana consumers did not have proper representation at the state capitol or at the local level.

Melissa dubbed the term “Coming out of the Cannabis Closet” early on to stand in cultural and social unity and solidarity with groups fighting for civil rights and freedoms, and to be a voice for the cannabis community.

Deputy Director Travis Green

Travis is a professional and talented musician, guitarist, lyricist, and vocalist for the band Sway Jah Vu. He is the owner and operator of New Green Organiks Nursery, New Green Hemp, North Florida Hemp Farms, and Director of Operations for The Holistic Cannabis Community.

Travis’ skills and talent bring a perspective to the commercial and personal use industry that are invaluable and unparalleled to build the legalization market in Florida.
